# Exam 3 Study Guide: Chapters 5-6

1. You are given a table with columns for the z-score, area to the left of the z-score, area to the right of the z-score, and twice the smaller area. You will be given one piece of information (anything but twice the smaller area) and asked to find the other values. Eight parts.
2. Look up the critical values using the normal or t tables. Remember that when the critical value notation is used, it is always the right tail area that is given. Three parts. Remember that the df=n-1 for the t distribution and it's the df you lookup in the t table, not the sample size.
3. Standard normal probabilities. Draw vertical line(s) at the indicated z-scores and shade the described region. Then use the standard normal table to find the area of the described region. The curve is supplied, you just need to label and shade it. Seven parts. Look at problems 5.2.9-28, 33-36.
4. The mean and standard deviation for a non-standard normal distribution is given. Find the probability of one randomly selected individual having a certain value. Find the raw score that goes along with a certain probability. Find the probability of the mean of a group having a particular value.
5. Same as #4.
6. The population mean and standard deviation for a non-standard normal distribution are given. Label a normal curve with the appropriate values for the tick marks. Label the graph to illustrate the 68-95-99.7 rule.
7. The results of a public opinion poll are given. Read the results and determine the sample proportion, margin of error, confidence level, and confidence interval.
8. A confidence interval for the population proportion is given. Find the sample proportion and the margin of error.
9. A sample size and number of successes is given. Find the sample proportion, the standard error for the sample proportion, the margin of error, and the confidence interval.
10. A sample size and a confidence interval for the population mean are supplied. Find the sample mean, the margin of error, the standard error the means, and the sample standard deviation.

## Notes

• You will need a calculator for the test.
• The formulas for the mean and standard error of the sample proportion and sample mean are given on the test. A generic formula for margin of error is also given. You will need to know when and how to use the formulas, though.
• The standard normal and t-tables will be supplied with the test.
